I have want appears to be an invasive nastie cookie that changes my homepage everytime I open IE6. I have tried Tools/Internet options, homepage etc, and also the suggestions mentioned on your board from George Waters. No luck so far any ideas?

Re: Home page load on start up.

...your annoyance is probably caused by a setting in your Registry (or a 'resetting' in your Registry, to be more correct).

The following two URLs will help you quickly sort the matter out and prevent it happening again.

Thanks for the quick response, but still no joy after following the instructions!! tried searching for all mentions of the offending site in registry and substituting my homepage. Still no luck, although I'm no expert at regedit!
